Subject[patch 13/73] sky2: disable rx checksum on Yukon XL
2.6.23-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.
------------------
From: Stephen Hemminger <shemminger@linux-foundation.org>

Backport of 8b31cfbcd1b54362ef06c85beb40e65a349169a2

The Marvell Yukon XL chipset appears to have a hardware glitch
where it will repeat the checksum of the last packet. Of course, this is
timing sensitive and only happens sometimes...

More info: http://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=9381

As a workaround just disable hardware checksumming by default on
this chip version. The earlier workaround for PCIX, dual port
was also on Yukon XL so don't need to disable checksumming there.
